Buying a bike in China and riding home with it
I'm not teaching anything to anyone when I say getting a foreign bike into China is either a lot of hassle, or costly, or both if ever possible. I was in Kyrgyzstan in summer '08, saw guys try to get in through Torugart or Irkeshtam, seen them back. Agreed, trying to enter so close to Tibet and the Olympic Games was never going to be a cakewalk but still.
So I'm thinking, the best way might be to buy a Chinese bike, register it there, and ride it to Europe until pollution laws stop it, or to Northern Africa and sell it there.
There's quite a bit of information about getting a bike in, not so much about getting it out. Any of you either know something or can direct me to a place that may? (For the record I already found MyChinaMoto, asking for help there too).
Thanks in advance
